Thank you for supporting Room Escape Artist over the last 4 years… or since whenever you stumbled upon us while searching about escape rooms on the Internet.
Many of you have asked us how you can support our efforts to build a sustainable escape room industry now and into the future. We’ve hesitated to turn our passion project into something more, but a couple of tours and many growing costs later…
We finally have an answer:
What is Patreon?
Patreon is a platform for content creators to receive ongoing monetary support from the folks who enjoy their work. You can pay a small (or large) amount of money each month in exchange for some nifty bonus rewards. Patreon gives us an outlet to earn ongoing revenue, which we will put right back into Room Escape Artist.
Is REA still free?
Yes! We will continue to publish daily blog content right here on Room Escape Artist. You can still read as often (or as seldom) as you like, whether or not you support the Patreon. We believe in providing an accessible escape room resource to all players, creators, operators… and the escape room curious.
Our ask is that if you enjoy our work and have the means to support us, please consider it.
Are you selling out?
No. This is so that we don’t have to sell out.
Supporting the Patreon won’t buy you a good review. In fact, some of our Patrons have anonymous names and emails. You can do that too, if you’d like.
Should I back this Patreon?
You will support our mission to provide well-researched, rational, and reasonably humorous pieces that push the industry forward. You will support our efforts to build a community of players and creators that will sustain the escape room industry for the future.
We both work day jobs. All of the content you read is created on weekends and in the evenings… and late into the night. We are at capacity. We have more ideas than we can possibly create in off hours. With your support, we will give more time to Room Escape Artist and hopefully get a few more people involved with it. We will deliver more interesting escape room-related content for you to enjoy.
What if I want to help, but I can’t?
You can! You can share our Patreon page with your friends, family, teammates, colleagues, and anyone else you know who cares about escape rooms. When you share our content, you support us. We truly appreciate it.
Thank you to everyone who has already backed our Patreon. There are a number of you already. (We’ve already hit our first goal!)
We are incredibly grateful for your support. It is inspiring!
Post below or contact us.
Seriously. We’ll answer them. They don’t even have to be about Patreon.
